Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Green

Green colour palets that stand out and are eye catching, compared to our forest green - Olivia:
As our leaves are beginning to turn their beautiful fall colors, I thought we might spend a few minutes looking at some of the green things in our world.

Fav color... Beautiful!! Emerald Chiffon Dress.  This is so beautiful I gasped.  Really.: I once loved a young man who drove a Beetle in this color. We decided to call the car "Lymon" because of its lemon-lime color.:

Before there was Tupperware there was Jadeite.  During the depression when housewives couldn't afford to waste a crumb glassware manufacturers turned out inexpensive jadeite with flat lids for storing and stacking all manner of ingredients.  This pin is from Martha Stewart's collection of jadeite.  #lifeinstyle & #greenwithenvy:

The thing that started my thinking about green was a car that I saw on the way home this afternoon. It was an odd shade of emerald green that really caught my attention. So I thought I'd leave you with a green car. It's not exactly the right shade or even the same type of car, but you get the idea.

Oh I love your mosaic of greens Mary! The leaves are starting to turn around here too. So there are lovely shades of greens everywhere you look. It even got me inspired to finish a modern maples quilt that I stated last year.

My favourite colour! I am particularly inspired by the green shoes.
